Nice seasonal quiz!

A few things to note: 26th December is called St. Stephen's day in Ireland (and presumably in lots of other places)

A poinsettia is a flower, not a flow (typo)

We always learnt in school that the wise men arrived on 6th January with their gifts and that is called the Epiphany, which marks the end of the Christmas season.

Could you not accept mince pies as culinary confections? Surely more seasonal than biscuits/cookies which are year-round?
